Hi everyone,
I'm new to this forum and need a bit of help understanding the benefits, I have just received  my first payment of LCWRA  BENEFIT and was wondering if I was entitled  to back pay as my first sick note was put in on the 2nd of May 23and was told I had to wait 3 full assessment  period 
Yours sincerely
Pauline

    Hiya @pauline63 and welcome to the community!  

    I'm just moving your post to a different category, so all our amazing regulars will be able to see it and give you all the advice you could possibly need. :)  

    As far as I'm aware, back pay is usually paid back to when you first put in for LCWRA.

    Hi @pauline63 - & welcome from me too. From what you've said it's possible no backpay is due. As you've already been advised, there's a 3 full month waiting period, with payment being then due in the 4th month (depending when your assessment periods are).
